Engaging

Art and Science will come together

Why do we create art? How did we, as a species, decide to start creating? A possible answer to this question is that human beings, as a social animal, have a need to express themselves and their emotions. Join us this summer term and explore different forms and ways of human expression. Through connectivity and collaboration with others, through human figuration, through relating to our environments.

Welcome to our Glow Garden! A one-of-a-kind, UV blacklight installation inspired by the Singapore Garden Rhapsody as well as artist duo Chiaozza. Our Explorers will experiment with fluorescent paint to craft joyful sculptures with a vibrant colour palette and a sense of the surreal. They will then hone illustration techniques to create a ‘Neon Botanic’ painting to complete their glowing display.

Core Art   (4.5 yrs+)

Step Inside

Our Core Artists are invited to step inside an immersive environment of their making. They will collaborate to build an installation that occupies the Colour My World space, from floor to wall to everything in between. Using organic and geometric shapes, students will produce sculptural shapes and painted tiles that relate to each other and centred on the theme of ‘human connectivity’. Materials will include diverse qualities of fabric, paper, paint and wood.

Ready-Set-Draw   (8 yrs+)

Affichiste Illustration

Become an ‘Affichiste’. Learn a little about the history of modern advertisement posters through artists Jean Chéret and Henri Toulouse-Lautrec. Borrow these masters’ techniques of ‘suggested textures’ and ‘glowing colour’ to express with both dry media and wet paint.

Tactile Textile   (10 yrs+)

Archi Nature

Recompose a mélange of built environment and greenery into an imaginative design. Using a surface with nails aligned onto it as a base, you will create your tactile piece with woven threads. Explore the many variations that thread can offer to your composition such as creating patterns, effects of depth and texture, and optical colour mixing. Express Hong Kong’s natural and architectural environment through contrasting hard and soft materials.

Architecture in Context  (13 yrs+)

Build a foundation for both creative and technical architectural drawing. Learn to render perspective, shape, space and form.

Combining

Art and Science will come together

This Spring, you are invited to delve into the concept of ‘Combining’. You will apply it in a multitude of ways, from the very direct combination of contrasting colours and materials to the more conceptual contrast of ideas and styles. Combine, Create, and Think deeper!

ENROL NOW: Term starts from 1 Mar! Existing students do NOT need to re-enrol.

Explorer’s Art   (3 – 4.5 yrs)

Selfie Space

How would you portray yourself? With a giant happy smile? A silly face? Maybe even a frown? Our Explorers will be manifesting their own emotion and memory through self-portraiture. Learn the basics of human anatomy and facial proportion, and create an acrylic ‘Painted Selfie’. Practice stylization and conceptualization to build a ‘Memory Box’ which depicts a memorable scene within a mixed-media diorama.

Core Art   (4.5 yrs+)

Playful Combining

Our Core Artists will take the concept of ‘Combining’ head on and apply it to Shape, Colour, Motif, Material, and Space. Take inspiration from interiors depicted by Modern artist Henri Matisse and Contemporary artist Jens Fänge. Explore flat and three-dimensional depictions of space and motif which also features their silhouette in profile. Then apply their newly created print patterns in an expressive ‘interiors’ paper collage and sculptural relief model of an outdoor space.

Ready-Set-Draw   (8 yrs+)

Illustrated Characters

How do illustrated characters move us? Why does a comic make us laugh, or an animation make us cry? Discover the fun of character design and illustration. Explore facial expression photographs and a variety of sequential arts masters’ studies eg Shiyoon Kim (Big Hero 6) and Hergé (Tintin). You will create two final studies; the many emotions of a single character inspired by a real person and a classic portrayal of a contrasting character duo in different rotations.

Sculpture Culture
(Pottery-Ceramics 8 yrs+)

Fundamentals Master Class

Learn to build three-dimensionally and excel in creation that takes form in art ware, figurines, sculpture, decorative and applied art objects. Acquire fundamental skills from pinching, coiling, slab to wheel-throwing, we shall experiment with new materials whilst utilising techniques of slip casting, clay modelling, and surface texturing.     

Tactile Textile   (10 yrs+)

Felted Artefact

The word ‘Textile’ originates from the Latin Textilis, meaning a woven fabric using all sorts of fibres including cotton, linen, and wool. It is however likely that the non-woven fabric process of Felting predates weaving, making it the oldest textile creation technique in human history.  You will familiarise yourself with this very hands-on process of wet felting before developing a personal artefact in the form of a felted tactile sculpture or image.

NEW! Architecture in Context  (13 yrs+)

Build a foundation for both creative and technical architectural drawing. Learn to render perspective, shape, space and form. With a mix of technical drawings, mood boards and illustrations, investigate common practical challenges faced in industry within the context of Hong Kong’s numerous historic landmarks. Topics of investigation include building Relocation, Restoration and Conversion. Use real floor plans and imagery from existing structures to create both conceptual and imaginative drawings.

Sketchbook Studies / Painting
(
10 yrs+)

Art & Commodity

Examine the blurred lines between Art and Commodity through the works of Pop artists Kaws, Takashi Murakami, Banksy who are well-known not only for their auctioned artworks but also for their merchandise. How did we make the shift from considering Fine Art to be exclusively hand-made into valuing the art of machine-made millions dollar products? Analyze how these household names utilise ‘cartoon-y’ characters to represent their ‘brand’. Then design your own, and apply it to a product of your own, be it clothing, furniture or other ‘ready-made’ objects.

 

Mentor Studio   (13 yrs+)
